Well if you had a Mac the obvious choice would be to render to ProRes 422 HQ or 4444 and be done with it but on the PC it's a lot more complicated.

You could use the Sony YUV codec which is lossless but I'm pretty sure that only Vegas Pro can read it so it's not a good general purpose archive format. You could download the free GoPro Studio to get the CineForm codec and then create a custom render template for it in Vegas Pro. CineForm uses a visually lossless wavelet codec which is very good. I would stay away from solutions like Avid DNxHD because Vegas Pro has problems with using lots of QuickTime files. HuffYUV is another lossless Video for Windows (AVI) codec that you could download and install and create a template for.

Out of those choices, CineForm might be your best option.
